this space for news. >>> here's the background, when george w. bush picked harriet mier meyers, he was showing trademark loyalty. he was also particularly happy to have found a woman he trusted for that job since the seat she was going to be filling on the court would be the one vacated by the retiring justice sandra day o'connor. now the harriet miers nomination didn't work out. outside conservative groups had weighed in against the bush administration and told them that harriet myers was not right wing enough for the court and the bush administration caved and decided to take back the president's choice that is how it seemed at the time, how it was reported in the time. but in peter baker's new book "days of fire," he reports that story, the way it actually happened is not at all the way it reported. the bush administration knew those groups weren't going to be happy when they picked harriet m miers. it could be a show of strength against people on their own side who might try to bully then on an important issue. now, the real reason that harriet miers nomination fell apart becau

suggests that george w. bush tapped the phones of world leaders? >> when did this start? >> four or five years ago. >> 2002. >> 2002. >> the tapping of foreign leaders. >> yes. so you have to apply the same questions to president bush, first of all, whether they do or do not know. i think barnacle brought up the biggest point and that is the nsa overreaching in its power, is this something people want done but they don't want to hear about it. you got to look at that part of it too because we can apply this to a couple of different issues that we complained about or argued about on our set about the conduct of the bush administration. but i would say that most importantly, the important disconnect that i think is happening in this story is that people are thinking that like someone is sitting there listening to her conversations. the phone calls are being monitored. that's different than tapping the phone. >> this is gene. i did write about it this morning. >> i was reading that. >> that the nsa is out of control. >> yes. >> some of us do think the nsa is out of control and some of us th
